August brings with it the start of Djilba, one of the six seasons of Wadandi Boodja (Saltwater People’s country).
A transitional season, Djilba marks the beginning of the end of winter. Now if that’s not enough to be excited about, then just wait until you hear about our chock a block August events calendar complete with a world class festival, comedy nights, wine events and more!
August may still be cool with some rainy patches, but interwoven are bright, crisp days that remind us that spring is just around the corner. As our rugged coastline begins to erupt with new signs of life, our oceans are packed with playful whales making their way from the freezing Antarctic to warmer waters for breeding season. A time of rebirth and change, there is so much to look forward to… and even more so if you happen to be a movie buff.
